Japan’s Nexion, a global video transmission company, has chosen Media Links’ MDP3020 JPEG-XS 4K IP media gateways as its content transport technology for high-quality delivery and live transmission of sporting events, music concerts, conferences, and other events to broadcasters and media companies throughout Japan.
Nexion’s domestic and international backbone fibre networks connect dozens of broadcasters, production companies, and media organisations to major event venues. The MDP3020 JPEG-XS 4K IP media gateways, the company said, were chosen for their exceptional image quality, low latency, fault tolerance, and overall investment efficiencies.
Takeshi Hirose of Nexion’s Sales Division added, “In order to meet the increasing demand for 4K transmission, an IP transmission device with high image quality and low latency compression technology such as the MDP3020 JPEG-XS 4K was essential.
“After conducting various studies, including evaluation and verification, we decided to use the MDP3020 JPEG-XS 4K not only because of its product performance, but also because of its compatibility with our infrastructure, its track record of technical support for our other systems, and its superior cost-effectiveness.”
The MDP3020 IP gateways use JPEG-XS for high image compression and ultra-low latency processing, making it ideal for network edge services to deliver live video and data to broadcasters and viewers.
Indeed, iIt is a highly scalable, flexible IP media distribution system delivering visually lossless 4K video.
